Bella Vista Condos

Catharine Street Lofts

639-641 Catharine St.
Philadelphia, PA 19147

Located in Philadelphia’s Bella Vista (Beautiful Sight) neighborhood, the Catharine Street Lofts is a boutique loft development new to Philly in 2005. Common with many loft style condos, Catharine Street lofts combines industrial design with a modern elegance. These condos are all 2 bedroom units (some are really 1 bedroom + a den) and have anywhere from 1.5 to 3 bathrooms. You will find top-shelf brands and finishes throughout these condos from Brazilian cherry wood floors to Italian marble in the bathrooms to Schiffini cabinets in the kitchens. In maintaining the loft theme, you will find exposed brick, wooden beam work, and exposed ductwork. There is no doorman, gym, or on-site parking, but the building is pet friendly and has a killer, expansive roof deck with 360 degree views…the skyline views from the roof deck are sensational.

Lofts at Bella Vista

1101 Washington Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19147

As the name suggests, this building located on Washington Ave., is home to 78 loft-style condos. The Lofts at Bella Vista were completed in 2006 and feature the following: polished concrete floors (some have upgraded to hardwood), exposed ductwork, exposed wooden beams, oversized windows, 18 ft ceilings, floating staircases, exposed brick, floating sink vanities, and designer finishes. There are the penthouse units located on the top floor of the actual building, but in addition to them, there are prefabricated condos on the roof that are really cool, different, and unlike just about anything else in Philadelphia. There are one, two, and three bedroom options with a variety of floor plans/layouts. The rooftop condos feature lots of outdoor space, some with three different levels, upwards of 1,000 square feet of outdoor space, and roof decks with panoramic views of the city. These condos come with indoor parking, a doorman, additional private storage, a residents lounge, and a fitness center. Located just a few short blocks from the Italian Market, these high end lofts, with a European flair, offer the feel of a modern urban oasis. The Lofts at Bella Vista are definitely worth checking out.
